Julien Baker moves to Matador, releasing 7″ single

News / Preorders / January 6, 2017

As part of Julien Baker’s signing with Matador Records, she will release a new 7″ single. The single includes recently released song, “Funeral Pyre,” and unreleased track from the Sprained Ankle sessions (both are actually from those sessions), “Distant Solar System.”

If you want to know what it’s like being on “Team MV,” all we did all day was argue about what direction Baker should take in her next LP, what variation she should introduce (if any). I’m on team “go heavy” or “introduce a consistent keyboard” for the record. Mike is on team “she’s overrated” so @ him until he realizes I wrote this.

The 7″ is coming out on March 17th.
